the feast of moveable stitch markers continues… dine on some techniques at Knitty City
The round of classes we offered at Knitty City in October and November were such a hit that we’re running a few of them again in December. What with the busy-ness of the holidays, there’s time for just a couple of them this time around. Stay tuned for more in the future. Here’s the slate for December….
